The Art of Dead Space brings the beauty of terror home this October

Released just last year in 2023, EA and Motive Studio’s remake of the original Dead Space hit the right notes for both fans and critics. The game garnered plenty of acclaim, for the way it recaptured the 2008 original’s feel, while updating it in spectacular fashion. And while fans might be looking for more in the video game realm, Dark Horse Books is taking up the reigns for a deeper look at both the remake and the property’s classic debut.

Motive and EA will be teaming with the publisher for The Art of Dead Space, which will land in stores this October. Just in time to bring series fans some visual chills and thrills for Halloween.

“The Dead Space remake was a labor of love for the entire Motive team,” says Jo Berry, Senior writer on Dead Space. “This art book allows us to showcase not just the work of our incredible artists, but the choices behind the scenes that shaped this remake.”

Celebrate the art of the 2023 smash-hit Dead Space—the completely rebuilt sci-fi survival-horror game. Pore over details, small and large, that expand and improve upon the original game’s thrilling vision. Explore the claustrophobic hallways of the Ishimura and the alien landscape of Aegis VII. Examine the iconic engineering suits, tools, weapons, characters, and gruesome Necromorphs featured in the game.

“The Dead Space remake was a passion project for us at Motive Studio,” says Mike Yazijian, Art Director of Dead Space. “This artbook showcases the visual development of the game, from early explorations to final renders of our characters, monsters, and environments.” The Art of Dead Space is presented on beautiful, high-quality paper stock so you don’t miss any element of this faithful and terrifying ground-up remake.

Dark Horse press release

Presented in hardcover format and clocking in at 200 pages, The Art of Dead Space will land on October 15th, 2024 in bookstores, and on October 16th in comic shops. Priced in at $49.99 USD, Dark Horse says that pre-orders are open right now via “AmazonBarnes and NobleTFAW and at your local comic shop and bookstore“.
